Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

6 Weeks

The last six weeks have flown by for me despite the fact that I have been battling thrush for much of it. I am happy to say that the meds finally seem to be kicking in and I am more comfortable every day. Aria continues to grow like a weed. Many of the little sleepers and outfits that she originally wore no longer fit. She is now smiling and cooing and tries to watch me when I walk around in a room. She is also amazingly strong. She holds her head up to look around and loves to plant her feet down so that she can push up into standing. Calla and Maya remain enamoured with their little sister as you can see in the picture below.

Mike has taken the girls to the beach a couple of times this year. I haven't made it yet because it has been super hot and anywhere there is shade there are mosquitos. It kind of sucks for a newborn.
Here is Aria in one of her pretty little outfits. I just love ladybugs!

This is Calla riding a pony on her field trip to the farm. Mike took the day off and joined them.

Here are a couple of shots from the littlest big girl's birthday. She decorated her own crown and wanted a princess birthday cake. Belle is her favorite.

Love to you all,
